The 7-foot-3 center as well as the agency made the announcement Wednesday night as Sotto hopes to resume his bid to be the first homegrown Filipino talent to play in the NBA.

Sotto was initially represented by Bell which initially resulted to a stint in Australia’s NBL. Bell was also Sotto’s agent when he applied for the NBA Draft last June.

However, plans on Sotto’s next move after going undrafted in the NBA were shrouded with confusion following the statements of Bell that the Filipino wunderkind will instead play for Gilas Pilipinas and will not entertain teams for the NBA Summer League.

Sotto was quick to refute Bell’s statements through a tweet, saying that Bell “misspoke” and that he has yet to make a decision regarding his future.

With offers for Sotto going scarce as he found himself without a team when the Summer League kicked off earlier in the month, the camp of the Filipino prodigy switched to Wasserman – the same sports marketing and talent management company that handles the likes of Derrick Rose, Domantas Sabonis and rising stars Evan Mobley and Shai Gilgeious-Alexander
